The end of a company with a very dumb idea

Washboard, a subscription service that that sold US quarters for 37.5 cents, called it quits after being in business for two weeks.

Washboard founder Caleb Brown wrote:

Nearly 100% of the internet thought Washboard was an absolutely absurd concept. I had a very difficult time convincing people the service was even real but we did have customers that were excited for it. I apologize to those folks but we have decided to shut down Washboard.
